2:22 am
then, down 9%. chinese exports and manufacturing up by 12%. remember overall. u.s. consumers buy goods a lot cheaper since all the trade deals. >> trade shuffles the deck. who are the winners and losers here? >> manufacturing has been a loser. who should note manufacturing jobs actually peaked in 1979. so that's 15 years before nafta. what's really changed the game? technology. automation. and when we look at those sectors around technology, we 2003. and we should also note one big winner, the world, because we have seen millions of people lifted out of poverty. home? how do you help those people who lost their jobs? agreements. economies. spending money on retraining and offering financial assistance in the form of tax credits. the best solution. >> cbs news business analyst, jill schlessinger.

2:28 am
last year millions watched panda bear mei-jang give birth to twin pan diaz. only the third set born in the united states. at the national arboretum, a message below the live eagle-cam warns viewers you could see anything from sibling rivalry to predators. >> i think with all the political turmoil going on, these little eaglets are something we can agree on. >> democrat, republican. >> democrat, republican, independent, socialist, from, wherever you are. we can all get behind the eaglets. >> reporter: in a few weeks the public will come up with names for the eaglets. because to the many that watched this family is part of theirs too. and that's the "cbs overnight news" for this monday. for some of you, the news continues. for others, check back with us a little bit later for the morning news and cbs this morning.
2:29 am
york city, i'm michelle miller. welcome to the overnight news. i'm michelle miller. the next stop on the
2:30 am
comes tomorrow. the democrats will hold a caucus in idaho, utah and arizona will be holding primary elections. arizona is a winner take all state. and it saw its share of anti-donald trump protests over the weekend. trump's gop opponents, ted cruz and john kasich are hoping to capitalize on the unrest within the republican party. john dickerson spoke to kasich for "face the nation." >> governor, to get the nomination you would have to win more than 100% of the remaining delegates. how are you going to do it? >> first of all, nobody is going to have the delegates they need going to the convention. everyone will fall short. the convention by the way is an extension of the political process. so, what will happen is people will go there with a certain number of delegates. we'll go into cleveland with momentum. then the delegates are going to kid two things. number one, who can win in the fall? i amount one that can. the polls indicate.
2:31 am
consideration like who could be president of the united states? and i think when they take a look at my record, both in washington and in ohio, with the job growth, the wage growth, you know, reforming the pentagon, and then, they can understand that i have the crossover appeal. i think i will be picked. i don't think anybody is going to get there with the delegates that they nd to wineed to win. >> why should the person who goes into the convention, don't have the majority, well ahead, why shouldn't they get the nomination? >> you know what? it's like one of my daughters said like i had an 86. my other friend had less than that. i should get an a. we've got rules. you know, sweetie, you got to make a 90 to get an a. we have rules as to how many delegates you should get. if you go in way ahead you are likely to be picked. what's interesting in the ten contested republican conventions, you know that the leader going in only got picked three times.
2:32 am
you that, who is going to win in the fall? who is going to beat hillary? these folks can't win. they can't win ohio, i can tell you that. in addition, look at the resume. look at the record. who actually can fix this country? who can get us moving again? both the domestically and with foreign policy. so that should be a consideration now, not much of one, to be honest with you, but when we get to a convention, see, because i was there when ronald reagan actually challenged gerald ford. can you imagine how many people were mad at reagan. but his message mattered. he came close. he ultimately became one of the greatest presidents we have ever had. the convention is a very interesting thing. and delegates take things extremely seriously. let me also tell you, john, if somebody can get the numbers, they would win. they're not going to get the numbers. everybody chill out. >>some people suggested you should drop out so somebody can get the numbers. ted cruz is closer to the number
2:33 am
>> he needs 80% of the vote to get it. that's not going to happen, john. you know it. i know it. and trump -- >> nobody is calling me directly and asking me to drop out t and by the way. why denton't they drop out t john, why don't they drop out? i'm the one who can win in the fall. you know another interesting thing. this party has run around for seven years saying, how is it that we elected a one term united states senator to be president who never had the experience. whatever happened to that? remember that? so, here's what i would say. i can win in the fall. they cannot. >> you say you are delivering a positive message. you have stayed away from some of the back and forth. would you not in the pursuit of your nomination not want the help of the stop trump forces? the organized efforts to stop donald trump? >> you know, john, i'm not, i am not in this for some political science game or some calculation.
2:34 am
people are nervous about their work, their wages, their kids' future. that's what i focus on. responding to that legitimate concern that they have. and i tell them exactly how in washington. we had great success and balanced the budget and grew jobs. and i tell them about the 417,000 people who are now working in ohio who didn't have a job when i became governor i have people that come to my rallies and thank me for the fact that i have focused on the issue of mental illness and drug addiction. i don't have time to sit around thinking abut ing aing about this anti-trump group or that gruchlt let me dooup. let me do my job. communicate to the public. we'll seep where it where it ends up. i want you, the american people, you in your living rooms to believe you can change the world. we need you to do it. because the you will revive the spirit of our country. >> but governor, the people trying to stop donald trump
2:35 am
you just described are imperilled by his candidacy. and that gets them a little exorcised in the same way you are exorcised. so i just wonder if you think they're wrong, crazy, missed something? >> no, let them go and do. you know what is interesting? some of the same people wanted me to get out of the race. they wanted to get behind rubio. what happened. rubio is out. i'm in. okay. if i don't win ohio, guess what? trump is the nominee. i win ohio now they want me to get out. what are you, these are the same establishment people that have been fighting me my entire political career. you know what? i will tell you what is in my mind's eye. the people i grew up with in the mckeys rocks, people walked door to door for me. we had people from 22 statesmaning phone banks in ohio. they came from all over the country to help. they're hopeful together we can raise this country. i don't have time to think about all this political calculation
2:36 am
i'm any just not doing it. you have known me long enough to know that what you see is what you get. period. end of story. >> but you have in fact brought on people to help you with the -- the calculation, people with experience. >> sure. >> so you are in fact thinking abut the calculation. you don't want to talk about it. >> john, look. first of all, the convention is an extension of this process. of course i want stu spencer, of course i want charlie black, of course, i want vin webber, of course i want tom ridge, of course i want the former governor of utah. i want them all to help me. what do we think the convention is some sort of subterfuge it? is nothing more than extension of what we are doing now. if nobody gets the delegates, which they've won't, then we will have to work, you know, have to work it to convention. i will spend my time convincing them about my electability and my record. if they buy it, great. if they've don't. i will have done my best. john, i am perfectly comfortable with this.
2:37 am
question about merrick garland court. this could be a decision you have to handle. what's your feeling about the way your republican colleagues have responded to that nomination from the president? >> look, i never thought the president should send it. i knew nothing was going to happen. frankly they probably ought to sit down and meet with the guy. my feeling end of the day who ever gets elected president should be in a position to be able to pick, you know, who they want, and, and, the american people will decide by either voting for a republican or democrat what the makeup of the court is. i just think that's a process that can unite us. rather than a process that right now continues to divide us. >> the "cbs overnight news" will be right back. unstopables in-wash scent boosters the more you pour, the more scent you'll savor. toss it in before your clothes for luxurious scent up to 12 weeks unstopables by downy. america's best scent booster.

2:40 am
count, but isn't giving up the ship. sanders spoke with john dickerson for "face the nation." >> senator, we looked at the forward. it looks like you would have to win almost 60% of the remaining delegates. so what is your path to the nm nation? that is a big number? >> it is, but the states that are coming up just on tuesday. we have idaho, utah, we have got arizona, we are heading out west. to washington. we have alaska. we have hawaii, and we are heading to new york. we think the father forward is a pretty good path for us. clearly secretary clinton did very, very well. in the deep south. not a strong area for us. but i think as we go forward, are you going to see us doing better and better. and by the way. i think people are going to appreciate when they look at the polls. bernie sanders does better against donald trump than hillary clinton does.
2:41 am
18 points ahead of donald trump than secretary clinton. i think that will play a factor in the coming states. >> sequestercretary clinton won in the states and not the deep south. >> she did. and we won in michigan. end of the day if you look at michigan, illinois, missouri, we come out almost the same in terms of delegates. >> hillary clinton has 2 million more votes than you have. the theory of your campaign and presidency has been to create a movement, to create momentum, to gather people. she seems to be able to gather more people behind her message than you. isn't that a threat to the, to the theory of the sanders' campaign? >> no, no, no, no. john, not at all. what you are really talking about is she did very well in the deep south. she creamed us in mississippi, alabama, south carolina. now i wish i didn't have to say this, but everything being equal, no democrat right now, i hope that changes, i think it will is going to win those
2:42 am
general election. we have now won nine states. i think in a couple weeks you are going to see us win more states. i think as we head to the west coast, which is probably the most progressive part of america, the ideas that we are fighting for, dealing with the grotesque level of income of and wealth inequality, a national health care system through medicare, for all, raising the minimum wage, $15 an hour. i think the people in those states really are not going to be voting for a establishment politics and establishment economics they want real change. i think we are going to do well there. >> one last tactical question, senator. there has been a report that you might go to the convention. if you are behind in delegates try to flip the superdelegates to win through using superdelegates. is that a strategy you are looking at? >> the whole concept of super delegates is problematic. i would say in states where we have won you know by 20, 25
2:43 am
might be a good idea for superdelegates to listen to the people in their own state. i just talked to -- a person the other day. who said, you know what. i am going to listen to my state. if my state votes for you, bernie, you will have my vote. i think that i would hope that a lot of the superdelegates take that factor into consideration. >> so yes that is a strategy you are pursuing? >> well, to say to a superdelegate. bernie sanders won your state by 20, 30 points, you know you might want to listen to your state. i think that is common sense. i think superdelegates should do that. >> if they didn't come from a state that you won, they shouldn't feel compelled to go for you? >> well that's, legally they have their own decision. to be made. they have their own right to make the decision. but i would argue that many of the superdelegates for them, what is most important as it is for me and secretary clinton by the way, is making sure that no
2:44 am
house. and if people conclude by the end of this campaign, if we have the energy, and an if, if we win a number of states. that's also an if. but if that its the factor and it appears that i am the stronger candidate against trump, i think you are going to see some superdelegates saying, you know what i like hillary clinton but i want to win this thing. bernie is our guy. >> it's been months since south carolina's republican senator lindsay graham dropped his bid for the gop nomination. since then he has been an unofficial spokesman for the republican party establishment, opposing both donald trump and ted cruz. well, graham was singing a different tune when he sat down to talk with john dickerson for "face the nation." >> you once said that choosing between trump and cruz is like the difference between being shot or poisoned. so, how is your health? >> you know, maybe they will find an anecdote for poisoning, hard once you are shot to get
2:45 am
trump would be an utter disaster for the republican party, destroy conservatism as we know it, we would get wiped out and take generations to overcome a trump candidacy. ronald reagan had a three-legged stool of conservatism. fiscal, social, strong national security. donald has a four legged stool because he is the donald. got to be bigger. economic populism, xenophobia, race bad itting and religious bigotry are the stool that he has formed. that's his campaign. that is not conservatism. ted cruz in my view is a real republican who i often disagree with. i've am supporting ted i think he is the best alternative to donald trump. john kasich is the most electable republican. i don't think he has a chance to win. at the convention, because it is an outsider year. john kasich is an insider. most delegates are looking for an outsider. i love john kasich. if he stays in the race or they don't coordinate the efforts between cruz and kasich, we're going to wind up giving the
2:46 am
>> you say an outsider year. your description of trump's campaign. a very popular campaign. people turning up to the rallies. he is getting the votes. >> 35% to 40%, where he is going to be. a lot of people believe that illegal immigration is a real problem. playing on their fears. he says most of them are rapists and drug dealers, they're not. heres why we are losing the hispanic vote. nobody is going to listen to you about your economic plan or ability to defend the nation if you are going to depart their grandmother. i'm in the party of family values. i like that. there are 11 million illegal immigrants. 60% here a decade. many have american children. american citizen, chirp and children and grandchildren. what will happen to republican friend if our position if they take their grandmother, member of the military, who is illegal. how do we get the person to vote for us if we will deport their
2:47 am
done is violate the immigration laws. this is why we are getting killed with the hispanics. mr. trump has taken every problem we have had with the hispanics and poured gasoline on it.s. it's free of harsh ingredients, keeping dark clothes looking like new for 30 washes so your love for dark clothes will never fade. woolite darks. >> important message for residents age 50 to 85. write down this number now. right now, people are receiving this free information kit for guaranteed acceptance life insurance with a rate lock through the colonial penn program. if you are on a fixed income, learn about affordable whole life insurance that guarantees your rate can never increase for any reason. if you did not receive your information, call this number now. your acceptance is guaranteed, with no health questions. stand by to learn more. >> i'm alex trebek, here to tell you about a popular life insurance plan with a rate lock

2:53 am
it was horrific. i wish i had never seen it. he also told us that u.s. coalition air strikes are taking a heavy toll on isis. he and other fighters recently had their food allowance cut. they told us the air strikes are hitting their oil installations, he said. and they aren't making as much money as before. isis its under pressure because of the u.s. coalition air strikes. >> yes, he told us. a lot. >> and one of the finest foreign correspondents in the business has filed his last story. allen pizzey is now officially retired. scott pelley looks back on his long and distinguished career. >> allen pizzey, cbs news, east berlin. >> over four decades allen has brought the biggest stories in world to you. often risking this life as one of the premiere foreign correspondents of his generation. >> looks like they might have a

accepted the 2014 offer to normalize relations they appeare willing to test the benefits of capitalism. since then the u.s. approved business between the former foes. loosened the travel ban, restarted direct mail service and allows cubans to open bank accounts and earn salaries. a step that means athletes no longer have to defect to the u.s. to legally work there. while the cuban public is enthusiastic about the president's outreach, the castro government has been slow to make many of the changes that the administration asked for. >> relations with the united states have to overcome the great obstacles of history. and there is still a suspicion that, this normalization process is a trojan horse. designed to kill the cuban revolution with love rather than with aggression. >> in many ways that is the strategy. the obama administration hopes that increased financial opportunity will bring

3:21 am
on the campaign trail. u.s. trade policy a hot button issue on the campaign trail with candidates on both sides trashing deals that they say cost america jobs. >> nafta supported by the secretary cost us 800,000 jobs nationwide. >> but i will say -- trade deals are absolutely killing our country. >> the question is are international trade deals helping or hurting the american worker? here is cbs news business analyst jill schlessinger, which is it? >> little of both. the north american free trade agreement, 1984, the one bernie sanders said cost 800,000 jobs, probably didn't. it was probably a wash. according to economists. and china'sen troo into the world trade organization was a game changer. look at exporting and manufacturing in the u.s. since then, down 9%.
3:22 am
manufacturing up by 12%. remember overall. u.s. consumers buy goods a lot cheaper since all the trade deals. >> trade shuffles the deck. who are the winners and losers here? has been a loser. we should note manufacturing jobs actually peaked in 1979. so that's 15 years before nafta. what's really changed the game? technology. automation. and when we look at those sectors around technology, we saw technology up 30% since 2003. and we should also note one big winner, the world, because we have seen millions of people lifted out of poverty. >> what about the folks back home? how do you help those people who lost their jobs? >> not ripping up trade agreements. trade wars are terrible for economies. but by really spending money on retraining and offering financial assistance in the form of tax credits. that's probably the best solution. >> cbs news business analyst, jill schlessinger. thank you for being with us. >> thank you.

in idaho, utah and arizona will be holding primary elections. arizona is a winner take all state. and it saw its share of anti-donald trump protests over the weekend. trump's gop opponents, ted cruz and john kasich are hoping to capitalize on the unrest within the republican party. john dickerson spoke to kasich for "face the nation." >> governor, to get the nomination you would have to win more than 100% of the remaining delegates. how are you going to do it? >> first of all, nobody is going to have the delegates they need going to the convention. everyone will fall short. the convention by the way is an extension of the political process. so, what will happen is people will go there with a certain number of delegates. we'll go into cleveland with momentum. then the delegates are going to consider two things. number one, who can win in the fall? i am the only one that can. that's what the polls indicate. number two, john, a crazy
3:31 am
president of the united states? and i think when they take a look at my record, both in washington and in ohio, with the job growth, the wage growth, you know, reforming the pentagon, and then, they can understand that i have the crossover appeal. i think i will be picked. i don't think anybody is going to get there with the delegates that they need to win. >> why should the person who goes into the convention, don't have the majority, well ahead, why shouldn't they get the nomination? >> you know what? it's like one of my daughters said like i had an 86. my other friend had less than that. i should get an a. we've got rules. you know, sweetie, you got to make a 90 to get an a. delegates you should get. if you go in way ahead you are likely to be picked. what's interesting in the ten contested republican
3:32 am
leader going in only got picked three times. and again, john, i have to tell you that, who is going to win in who is going to beat hillary? these folks can't win. you that. addition, look at the resume. ok at the record. o actually can fix this untry? so that should be a consideration now, not much of e, to be honest with you, but when we get to a convention, see, because i was there when ronald reagan actually challenged gerald ford. can you imagine how many people were mad at reagan? but his message mattered. he came close. he ultimately became one of the greatest presidents we have ever had. the convention is a very interesting thing. and delegates take things extremely seriously. >> has anyone -- >> let me also tell you, john, if somebody can get the numbers, they would win. >> has anybody -- >> they're not going to get the numbers. everybody chill out. >>some people suggested you should drop out so somebody can get the numbers.
3:33 am
that's not going to happen, john. you know it. i know it. >> has anyone asked you to drop out though? >> nobody is calling me directly and asking me to drop out? and by the way -- why don't they drop out. john, why don't they drop out? i'm the one who can win in the fall. you know another interesting thing. is party has run around for ven years saying, how is it that we elected a one term united states senator to be president who never had the experience. whatever happened to that? remember that? so, here's what i would say. i can win in the fall. they cannot. >> you say you are delivering a positive message. you have stayed away from some of the back and forth. would you not in the pursuit of your nomination not want the help of the stop trump forces? the organized efforts to stop donald trump? >> you know, john, i'm not, i am not in this for some political science game or some
3:34 am
let me just tell you, that people are nervous about their work, their wages, their kids' future. that's what i focus on. responding to that legitimate concern that they have. and i tell them exactly how in washington. we had great success and balanced the budget and grew jobs. and i tell them about the 417,000 people who are now working in ohio who didn't have a job when i became governor i have people that come to my rallies and thank me for the fact that i have focused on the issue of mental illness and drug addiction. i don't have time to sit around thinking about this anti-trump group or that group. let me do my job. communicate to the public. we'll see where it ends up. i think this is a very construct constructive message to the american people. i want you, the american people, you in your living rooms to believe you can change the world. we need you to do it. because the you will revive the spirit of our country.
3:35 am
believe that many of the things you just described are imperilled by his candidacy. and that gets them a little exercised in the same way you are exercised. so i just wonder if you think something? >> no, let them go and do. you know what is interesting? some of the same people wanted me to get out of the race. they wanted to get behind rubio. what happened? rubio is out. i'm in. okay. trump is the nominee. get out. what are you, these are the same establishment people that have political career. you know what? i will tell you what is in my mind's eye. the people i grew up with in the mckeys rocks, people walked door to door for me. we had people from 22 states -- manning phone banks in ohio. country to help. they're hopeful together we can raise this country. i don't have time to think about all this political calculation okay, john.
3:36 am
you have known me long enough to know that what you see is what you get. period. end of story. >> but you have in fact brought on people to help you with the -- the calculation, people with experience. >> sure. >> so you are in fact thinking abut the calculation. u don't want to talk about it. >> john, look. first of all, the convention is an extension of this process. of course i want stu spencer, of course i want charlie black, of course, i want vin webber, of course i want tom ridge, of course i want the former governor of utah. i want them all to help me. what do we think the convention is some sort of subterfuge it? is nothing more than extension of what we are doing now. if nobody gets the delegates, which they won't, then we will have to work, you know, have to work it to convention. i will spend my time convincing them about my electability and my record. if they buy it, great. if they've don't. i will have done my best. john, i am perfectly comfortable with this.
3:37 am
question about merrick garland put forward by the president for the supreme court. this could be a decision you have to handle. what's your feeling about the way your republican colleagues have responded to that nomination from the president? >> look, i never thought the president should send it. i knew nothing was going to happen. frankly they probably ought to sit down and meet with the guy. my feeling end of the day who ever gets elected president should be in a position to be able to pick, you know, who they want, and, and, the american people will decide by either voting for a republican or democrat what the makeup of the court is. i just think that's a process that can unite us. rather than a process that right now continues to divide us. >> the "cbs overnight news" will be right back. because i'm a woman... do you think i'm gonna crack under pressure or conquer the field? defy expectations any day with always infinity. made with flexfoam. absorbs 10x its weight. rewrite the rules. always.

3:40 am
ship. sanders spoke with john dickerson for "face the nation." >> senator, we looked at the math here for the contest going forward. it looks like you would have to win almost 60% of the remaining delegates. so what is your path to the nm nation? that is a big number? >> it is, but the states that are coming up just on tuesday. we have idaho, utah, we have got arizona, we are heading out west. to washington. we have alaska. we have hawaii, and we are heading to new york. we think the father forward is a prtty good path for us. clearly secretary clinton did very, very well. in the deep south. not a strong area for us. but i think as we go forward, are you going to see us doing better and better. and by the way. i think people are going to appreciate when they look at the polls. bernie sanders does better against donald trump than
3:41 am
in fact in the last poll we were 18 points ahead of donald trump than secretary clinton. i think that will play a factor in the coming states. >> secretary clinton won in the illinois and that's not the deep south. >> here's the point as you know -- she did. and we won in michigan. end of the day if you look at michigan, illinois, missouri, we come out almost the same in terms of delegates. >> hillary clinton has 2 million more votes than you have. the theory of your campaign and presidency has been to create a movement, to create momentum, to gather people. she seems to be able to gather more people behind her message than you. isn't that a threat to the, to the theory of the sanders' campaign? >> no, no, no, no. john, not at all. what you are really talking about is she did very well in the deep south. she creamed us in mississippi, alabama, south carolina. now i wish i didn't have to say this, but everything being equal, no democrat right now, i
3:42 am
will is going to win those elections, those states in the general election. we have now won nine states. i think in a couple weeks you are going to see us win more states. i think as we head to the west coast, which is probably the most progressive part of america, the ideas that we are fighting for, dealing with the grotesque level of income of and wealth inequality, a national health care system through medicare, for all, raising the minimum wage, $15 an hour. i think the people in those states really are not going to be voting for a establishment politics and establishment economics they want real change. i think we are going to do well there. >> one last tactical question, senator. there has been a report that you might go to the convention. if you are behind in delegates try to flip the superdelegates to win through using superdelegates. is that a strategy you are looking at? >> the whole concept of super delegates is problematic. i would say in states where we have won you know by 20, 25 points, you know what i think it
3:43 am
superdelegates to listen to the people in their own state. i just talked to -- a person the other day. who said, you know what. i am going to listen to my state. if my state votes for you, bernie, you will have my vote. i think that i would hope that a lot of the superdelegates take that factor into consideration. >> so yes that is a strategy you are pursuing? >> well, to say to a superdelegate. bernie sanders won your state by 20, 30 points, you know you might want to listen to your state. i think that is common sense. i think superdelegates should do that. >> if they didn't come from a state that you won, they shouldn't feel compelled to go for you? >> well that's, legally they have their own decision. to be made. they have their own right to make the decision. but i would argue that many of the superdelegates for them, what is most important as it is for me and secretary clinton by the way, is making sure that no republican occupies the white
3:44 am
and if people conclude by the end of this campaign, if we have the energy, and an if, if we win a number of states. that's also an if. but if that its the factor and it appears that i am the stronger candidate against trump, i think you are going to see some superdelegates saying, you know what i like hillary clinton but i want to win this thing. bernie is our guy. >> it's been months since south carolina's republican senator lindsay graham dropped his bid for the gop nomination. since then he has been an unofficial spokesman for the republican party establishment, opposing both donald trump and ted cruz. well, graham was singing a different tune when he sat down to talk with john dickerson for "face the nation." >> you once said that choosing between trump and cruz is like the difference between being shot or poisoned. so, how is your health? >> you know, maybe they will find an anecdote for poisoning, hard once you are shot to get over it. the bottom line i believe donald trump would be an utter disaster for the republican party,
3:45 am
it, we would get wiped out and take generations to overcome a trump candidacy. ronald reagan had a three-legged stool of conservatism. fiscal, social, strong national security. donald has a four legged stool because he is the donald. t to be bigger. onomic populism, xenophobia, race baiting, and religious bigotry are the stool that he has formed. that's his campaign. that is not conservatism. ted cruz in my view is a real republican who i often disagree with. i've am supporting ted i think donald trump. john kasich is the most electable republican. i don't think he has a chance to win. at the convention, because it is an outsider year. john kasich is an insider.
3:46 am
an outsider. i love john kasich. if he stays in the race or they don't coordinate the efforts between cruz and kasich, we're going to wind up giving the nomination to trump. >> you say an outsider year. your description of trump's campaign. a very popular campaign. people turning up to the rallies. he is getting the votes. 35% to 40%, where he is going be. lot of people believe that legal immigration is a real oblem. aying on their fears. says most of them are rapists d drug dealers, they're not. heres why we are losing the hispanic vote. nobody is going to listen to you about your economic plan or ability to defend the nation if you are going to depart their grandmother. i'm in the party of family values. i like that. there are 11 million illegal immigrants. 60% here a decade. many have american children. american citizen, children and grandchildren. what will happen to republican friend if our position if they take their grandmother, member of the military, who is illegal.
3:47 am
for us if we will deport their grandmother when all she has done is violate the immigration laws. this is why we are getting killed with the hispanics. mr. trump has taken every problem we have had with the hispanics and poured gasoline on . rid-x helps break down waste. avoid a septic disaster with rid-x. in a world that's trying to turn you into someone new... ...one hair color wants to help you keep on being you. nice'n easy. natural-looking color... ...that even in sunlight, doesn't look like hair color... it just looks like you. i think we should've taken a left at the river. tarzan know where tarzan go! tarzan does not know where tarzan go. hey, excuse me, do you know where the waterfall is? waterfall? no, me tarzan, king of jungle. why don't you want to just ask somebody? if you're a couple, you fight over directions. it's what you do. if you want to save fifteen percent or more on car insurance, you switch to geico.
